Lovebirds Suzette and Clinton Diedericks celebrate 10 years of marriage this year. The couple met 11 years ago on social media. At the time they had both gone through breakups and enlisted each other’s help to get their ex’s back. Their plan went slightly off the rails when the two realised they had fallen madly in love. A year later they were married and set off on their journey together.
The secret to their happy and healthy relationship is communication and patience. The perfect date for Suzette and Clinton is a dinner at Ocean Basket. Clinton is adamant that Suzette is the better cook in the house and says her go-to meal is her amazing Chicken-ala-king. “Everyone loves it,” says Clinton.
Time is valuableSpending time together is valuable and special. “When we are together we visit Karaglen SuperSpar. Ever since we’ve been together this is where we shop. The staff are always friendly and the whole experience is wonderful,” Suzette says. She adds that life for the couple is hectic. “When we have time to relax, we usually watch Netflix”. Raising three children and working long hours means that Suzette and Clinton absolutely cherish every moment they have together.
For Valentine’s Day this year the couple hope to enjoy a picnic in picturesque Modderfontein. Clinton recalls that the funniest moment the two have shared together is when their baby girl was born and turned out to be a bouncing baby boy. “Everything we had for our baby was pink and looking back on it now we can only laugh,” Suzette says.
